After one hour and fifty minutes on the bubble a huge three-way all-in just occurred on the feature table, leading to the bubble bursting, one player having a monster stack and another being almost felted.
It folded to Dominik Panka on the button he raised to 16,000, Ramin Hajiyev three-bet to 41,000 from the small blind and Michael Tureniec then moved all-in for 301,000 total. Back on Panka he moved all-in for 264,000 and Hajiev called all-in behind for 245,000.
It was a massive cooler and the 2014 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure champion looked set for a massive triple up and the board kept the Pole in front, boosted him to 779,000, left Tureniec with just 37,000 and burst the bubble as it eliminated Hajiyev. Everyone left in is now guaranteed €18,000.
Michael Tureneic found himself in a difficult position in this hand in part because he unluckily ran up against two opponents holding monsters. But he also made a choice to try to apply pressure on a couple of players with stacks nearly equal to his rather than wait to challenge a shorter-stacked opponent.
